From the Manufacturer

Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse - Coal Black

Explorer Touch Mouse
One-touch scrolling
Scroll vertically AND horizontally with ease, using four-way touch scrolling

Navigate your PC in a whole new way with touch scrolling. Created for Windows 7, Explorer Touch Mouse will also work great with Windows 8 and the new horizontal scrolling experience on the Start Screen and in documents. So if you're moving from Windows 7 to Windows 8, your Explorer Touch Mouse can go with you.

Speed through long documents and spreadsheets

Explorer Touch Mouse speeds up everyday tasks with a touch strip that allows you to navigate with speed and control-and it provides a delightful burst of tactile feedback when you scroll through long documents, spreadsheets and Web pages. You can breeze past what you don't need with the flick of a finger, and stop with a gentle tap. Feel and experience the difference in how you work with your Windows 7 and Windows 8 PC.

The latest technology

Not only does Explorer Touch Mouse have sleek looks, it has features you can rave about. It includes three scroll speeds that use haptic feedback (light vibration that signals scrolling speed), giving you more control. Explorer Touch Mouse also has a battery life of up to 18 months and comes with BlueTrack Technology. Use it as you want to, with customizable buttons and customizable right- or left-handed use.

Conserves battery power

Explorer Touch Mouse even knows how to conserve energy. When your PC or tablet is shut down or hibernating, the mouse goes into "Backpack Mode." You can throw it into your bag and not worry if you turned it off because it senses that it no longer needs to be on.

Key Features

  1. Four-Way Touch Scrolling - Scroll vertically AND horizontally using the sleek touch strip. Flick up, down, and side to side to navigate spreadsheets, long documents, web pages and the new features of Windows 8. Scroll slowly with a gentle swipe or quickly with a flick of the finger, then tap to stop.

  2. Up to 18-Month Battery Life - Use your mouse for up to 18 months without having to change the batteries. Battery status indicator tells you when battery power is low.

  3. BlueTrack Technology - Take advantage of BlueTrack Technology, which combines the power of optical with the precision of laser for remarkable tracking on virtually any surface.

  4. Plug-and-go Nano Transceiver - Leave the Nano Transceiver (USB) plugged in when you're on the go, or stow it magnetically in the mouse.

Color: Coal Black Verified Purchase
My title pretty much summarizes how I find this mouse and let me put it right in the beginning. *** THIS MOUSE DOES HAVE A MIDDLE CLICK. THE TOUCH STRIP CLICKS !!! *** and can be configured to do any operation that a normal mouse would do. I am surprised that none of the other user reviews mentioned it. Even the product description, presumably from MS, does not mention it explicitly.

Pros (other than those in the title):
I use the wheel and the middle click quite a lot. I wore off the previous mice I used within few months. The wheels started slipping, hence skipping the pages on the screen. The middle clicks ended up being just slips than clicks. The primary cause, I figured, was dust and mechanical wear n tear. So I wanted to go for something which does not have a mechanical wheel.
--- Ergonomics:
This mouse has right weight and flatness. The weight is distributed towards the bottom because of the batteries. This makes it very stable on a surface. The size is just right for an average sized palm. I use it for work (over 10 hours a day) and I find it very comfortable.
I had considered the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse (Black) as well. But I was not sure about its ergonomics so I walked into a nearby store and tried both the mice. I liked this one a lot more than the Arc Touch mouse. The arc mouse does not provide any support to your thumb and since it rests only on two edges it tends to topple on its side.
--- Non-Mechanical scroll:
The primary reason why I bought this mouse. It takes few hours to get used to the scrolling. You can control the scrolling acceleration and the amount of vibration feedback (which emulates a mechanical wheel).

I was setting up a KVM at work, but my existing mouse and keyboard setup wouldn't allow me to run Logitech's Setpoint with the KVM, I purchased. I'd constantly lose my connection for some reason. I did some research online and discovered this isn't unusual, so I instead opted to find another mouse to fit the bill. This may seem like an easy problem to fix, but unfortunately, I'm sort of picky about my peripherals. I perused the other mice at a local big box store, since I wanted to actual get a feel for the mouse I wanted before I bought one. Besides the Logitech mice, the other prominent maker at the store, was Microsoft. I know this may sound silly, but I don't really like the fact that Microsoft has their name brand plastered across the top of nearly all their mice. I think it's tacky. At the very least Microsoft could make their name smaller, but I guess they wanted to make sure you really knew who's mouse you were using. This isn't Microsoft bashing specifically, I just personally don't like it when the products you've bought are constantly advertising themselves to you. For the same reason, I hate clothes with the name brand written across the front of them. So the mouse get's kudos points for not being a billboard. It's slick shiny and there's not a "Microsoft" anywhere on the mouse. So if you're style conscious, you'll love this. One drawback of the glossy exterior, as you can imagine, is that the surface is a magnet for fingerprints.

The buttons are nice, stiff and responsive. It does work on a multitude of surfaces. as advertised. As an added bonus, I discovered it also works on glass table tops. Previously with my old mouse I had to create some sort of make-shift mouse pad for it to work on my glass table-top desk, but no problem's here.

I got the limited edition white on top and grey on the bottom locally for only $25. I was looking for something closer to a full sized cordless mouse that still had a little port it in for the dongle. This one had that. I was skeptical about the touch scroll as the reviews about the touch abilities are all over the place. I think it is really up to personal preference. I use this mainly on my work computer (13" Mid 2012 MacBook Air) and a program many mac users that are also PC users love called "Steer Mouse" written and sold by a Japanese independent developer. WIth Steer Mouse I am able to customize the buttons, and the way the mouse tracks. After tweaking my settings over the span of a full day, it's perfect. Well what about the touch wheel? I LOVE IT! It is a little on the sensitive side, but also doesn't always respond to swipes and flicks of my finger. This is a rare occurrence but something to note. What I love most about this scrolling is that it is kinetic complete with haptic feedback! As you scroll it "clicks" in your hand, you can feel it and hear it. If you flick like you would with a wheel, the kinetic scroll is done in some kind of software on the mouse, and it will buzz and slow down clicking like a mouse wheel. Its actually pretty amazing. I personally love a nice notchy clicky scrool wheel and some years back Microsoft, a maker of great mice, went to a squishy clickly-less scroll wheel that I really hated. So I was surprised when I went to use this mouse for the first time and it did this. It is built into the hardware of the mouse and no drivers are needed for it to do this. It doesn't even need to be plugged into a computer. The mouse tracks wonderfully as well and 2 quality Duracell batteries are included.Read more ›
